Content

Math– We are classifying triangles by sides and angles, reviewing classifying 2-D polygons, and analyzing line plots with fractional parts.

Reading– We are continuing our poetry unit and will continue for the next 3 weeks. 🙂 Students are learning to mimic certain structures to create their own poems and learning how to utilize figurative language devices (metaphors, similes, alliteration, onomatopoeia, personification, hyperbole, irony, denotation/connotation, allusion, oxymoron)

Science- We are studying organisms and cell structure of plant and animals. We will also start our study of microorganisms as well.

Writing– Students are writing poetry and using figurative language in their poems
